What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a different life, an affirmation of life, cyanide, old things, frozen yogurt, pastrami, lobsters, a bloody mary, tiny hot dogs, Indian Ladder, Dan Eaton, a mural, and Brother Al.

Rob took a moment at a spot in downtown Albany where homeless people had been living.

Kevin went to a "life-affirming" performance at the Troy Bike Rescue.

Jackie survived a chemical weapon attack from a millipede.

Tim checked out the Historic Albany Architectural Parts Warehouse.

One of Kristi's readers asked about local mini-golf spots.

Ashallann enjoyed some "absolutely amazing" frozen yogurt that evoked a shamrock shake.

Jerry had some "very good" pastrami on a bagel in Troy.

Albany Jane scored fresh lobsters in Cohoes.

Daniel B considered what he doesn't know about the Capital Region.

Steve enjoyed the fantasy-inducing bloody mary at McGeary's.

Mr. Dave created "a Rolf's mini-dog popper."

Emily had a "great lunch" at Indian Ladder Farms' Yellow Rock Cafe.

Amanda wondered if she should have said something to a group of teens in a drug store.

Via David at Friday Puppy, a first-hand account of the Dan Eaton Band (you know, the YNN cooking guy).

Paula took a moment to take in the mural at Madison and Main in Albany.

And Chuck remembered Brother Al.

[A]nother factor that allows some politicians to slide into corrupt practices is the overriding notion that if they hadn't chosen to become "public servants" that they'd be making mega bucks on the corporate world. Which maybe they would. But it seems to give them license (in their own minds) to exploit any ethical grey area to make up for that loss of income.
